I cared for one woman for seven years. We did many lovely things together--movies, museums, flower shows, gardening, shopping. I developed a very close relationship with her and her family and extended family. Working with her on a daily basis, we got very close. She had Alzheimer's, which was somewhat controlled for a long time, and then escalated very rapidly in the last few months. She died at the age of 95.
Since then, I've worked exclusively with Alzheimer's clients, both men and women. I am committed to providing a warm, loving environment tailored to the individual's need. I am also devoted to helping support the primary caregiver in any way that I can.
